Take your argument somewhere else SVP.

EDIT: Talking about potential delay is fine, obviously, but if it turns into a back and forth of insults there's no reason for it to be here.

I've met him ingame a few times. Seeing "gold teeth in mordhau" as one of his aliases makes this even more bitter. I wish you, your family and friends the best.

This turned into quite the thread. The fact that people are starting to simply insult one another tells me there's no more room for discussion. The arguments have been stated multiple times - for both sides - and all that we can do now is wait for the Alpha to see for ourselves.

Don't get me wrong; I'd love to see everyone using first person, and do so myself exclusively. What I'm asking of you is to try not to radicalise in the idea that everything third person is inherently a big evil. We should use alpha testing for what the name implies and draw our conclusions from that. As far as I know, third person in Mordhau is just that; an experimental feature.

Adding third person is the worst thing they've done. It's a move which was made to appeal only to more casual players, while also adding in a view which was exploitable in Chivalry, which no one is excited for.

You're right that they added it to appeal to a larger audience, which on its own is completely fine. We don't yet know if it's "exploitable" in Mordhau, though. All we have to go on is the statements from the devs, who've said it isn't. I'd advice to withhold judgment until we get to mess around with it. If it proves to be exploitable, there's always to option to disable it.

On another note, I never found third person players in Chivalry to be any more of a problem to deal with than those in first person. The only thing they were better at was using spins/reverses more easily. Since those moves are invalid by default in Mordhau, I can't bring myself to dislike the decision to allow for third person. The peaking around corners thing never bothered me either, as it is quite easily to punish those who think they're the one laying the ambush.

Then again, best to wait for it to release. If it's as shit as you expect it to be, we will tell them.

What about massive shitposters get banned from every topic except a dedicated shiposting thread that's hidden to the normal users. Mordhau Drunk Tank lol

(I'm not being serious btw)

You mean a private message thread where you don't invite any moderators/devs?

Triternion has proven to be capable of making their own decisions. They shouldn't "listen" to trash, nor should they appeal to top-tier players. All they have to listen to is constructive feedback - no matter where it comes from.

Any more shitposting here and I'll lend Monsteri a hand dispensing bans. This includes sarcastic reactions to this statement.

No one has keys yet; they will be handed out when the Alpha hits. Other than that: pretty much what SirBoring said.

Please look up your information before creating a topic, it's very easy to find.

It would be perfect if they made voice commands like in battlefield squad commands (hold one button, swipe mouse to desired >command) it easy to navigate through it IMO.

To quote Crushed:
@Crushed
Emote menu's. No Radial Wheels, this is a god damn PC game

Emotes and voice commands are better done by menus. I wouldn't mind the option to enable these wheels, but I wouldn't use them. In my opinion, Chivalry did it very well with the invertible command list.

This is exactly what I wanted to hear! Will the menus be number or letter combinations though? E.g. V11 = Thank you OR VGT = Thank you? (Or have the devs not said anything about that detail yet?)

If Slasher's anything to go on, it will be Letter>Number.

Chivalry's voice commands were extremely popular. Honestly, I doubt the game would have been as successful as it's been without them. These commands allow for players to express themselves, and Mordhau will build on this with more diverse voice commands and the addition of animated emotes.

These things, in combination with self-expression through the way you use the combat system, will be a huge pull-factor for a lot of potential players. So yeah, this will definitely make it into the game.

I pity the Jehovah's Witnesses coming to your place.

Quite the tasty arsenal you've got.

Like Monkeytoes said, unfortunately there's no way to get into the alpha/beta at this time.

Who feels like joining me for some hardcore Mirage?

Also, just noticed the greatsword does less stab damage than the axe- and mace's stabs.

EDIT: Oh shit, there are actually people joining.

If Mordhau alpha doesn't come out this month I will make a sad, emotionally wrecking meme video.

Also probably take my own life.

Even though I chuckled, this stuff doesn't belong in General Discussion. Please keep joke threads in Off-topic next time.
